Blackened Tofu – By Miss Jess

Blackened Tofu
serves 4-6

2 1-lb blocks firm tofu             

 3/4 tsp ground white pepper salt                        

 3/4 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp sweet paprika                     

1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp onion powder                    

1/2 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp garlic powder  

6 to 8 tbsp butter, melted
1/2 to 1 tsp cayenne (to taste)
Cut tofu into slabs, 1/2″ thick and set on paper towels to drain for at least 30 minutes.  Mix 2 1/2 tbsp slat and the spices and herbs in a bowl.  Brush each piece of tofu with melted butter, then dredge with the spice mixture, patting it firmly into tofu.
Heat a cast iron skillet on the stove or a covered gas grill until it’s white-hot, about 15minutes.  Pour i tsp butter onto each piece, then place, buttered side down on skillet or grill.  Wait two minutes, then turn over and repeat.  Remove to platter and finish cooking remaining pieces.

Serve with coleslaw
